2010 Magliano Sinarra Igt Maremma
red fruit, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, lead, cedar, molasses and dark fruit
asparagus, green pepper, red fruit, mocha, leather, vanilla and tobacco
"A fruity bouquet with hints of violet fills the nose. On the palate, Sinarra is persistent with intense flavors of red berries and black cherries and a smooth, velvety texture."
"The wine is 95% Sangiovese, and 5% Petit Verdot grapes. The harvest is done during the second half of September. The winemaking is done with non-aggressive destemming and pressing, temperature-controlled fermentation (28 degrees C) in thermoconditioned stainless steel vats for 20-25 days; post-fermentation heated maceration for 3-4 days. It is aged in wood and then in bottle for 6 months each." - Winery
Fattoria di Magliano:
"Sprawled across 90 hectares, Fattoria di Magliano is a new winery located in Magliano, a commune of the province of Grosseto within the heart of Maremma, Tuscany, only 10 miles from the Tyrrhenian coast in central Italy."
"At present, 52 hectares are planted at a density of 6400 vines/ hectare using the bilateral Guyot training system. They are under the care of agronomist Valerio Barbieri, who established very strict yields from the start."
"Winemaker Graziana Grassini, alongside consultant Roberto Da Valle, works in a 1500 square meter cellar to create extraordinary wines. The tasting room and bottling center are located on the top floor above ground, while the vinification and barrel-rooms are underground to maintain ideal ageing conditions."
"Founded in 1997 by former shoemaker Agostino Lenci, he immediately began planting vines and building a modern winemaking facility, concentrating on producing wines of the finest quality." - Importer
